This paper proposes a mathematical framework to model and analyze the energy consumption of routing protocols in multi-hop Wireless networks such Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANETs) or Sensor Networks (WSNs) by taking into account the protocol parameters, the traffic pattern and the network characteristics defined by the medium channel properties, the dynamic topology behavior, the network diameter and the nodes density. Moreover, the authors' framework allows to classify routing protocols by exploring the relationship between application requirements and wireless network features.
